Lucifer finds another lifeline as Netflix in talks to renew drama for season 6


It’s happening again. After Lucifer was confirmed to be ending on its fifth and final season, the devilishly seductive drama has found another lifeline and could be renewed for a season six after all.

Lucifer was cancelled by Fox after its third cycle before being picked up by Netflix in June 2018 following a ferocious campaign from Lucifans.

The series lead by Tom Ellis subsequently became Netflix’s highest trending show for months which made the streaming giant’s decision to pull the plug more than a little baffling.

TV Line now reports Netflix and Warner Bros. are in talks to keep Lucifer running for at least one more pop, although neither parties have confirmed the news themselves just yet.

Ellis, who stars as Satan himself, previously described the #SaveLucifer campaign as ‘nothing short of ridiculously overwhelming’.

‘Since doing Lucifer, I’ve done press in various parts of the world, and I’m fully aware that this show is much more popular than what it had seemed to be on Fox… So I’m not surprised about people being angry,’ he told TV Line.

‘I just wasn’t ready this tsunami of love that came with it.’

Lucifer’s next chapter will be split into two parts. ‘Netflix is going to drop eight episodes, then there’s going to be a little break, then another eight episodes,’ Ellis explained.
